2nd CryoNET course on advanced single particle cryo-EM analysis

May 20, 2024 @ 08:00 May 24, 2024 @ 17:00 CEST

CryoNet is a Nordic network in cryogenic electron microscopy that aims to promote collaboration and knowledge sharing across national borders. A main goal is to help establish state-of-the-art cryogenic electron microscopy as a strong pillar of Nordic life science research.

The core of the network is constituted by the cryo-EM facilities at University of Copenhagen, Aarhus University, Stockholm University and Umeå University.

We are happy to announce the 2nd CryoNET course on advanced single particle cryo-EM analysis that will take place in Stockholm on 20-24 May 2024. Aim of the course is to provide training in cryo-EM image processing including latest developments of the field.

Participants will receive hands-on training in state-of-the-art techniques for single particle cryo-EM image processing, model building and validation from a range of international specialist guest lecturers. The course also includes theoretical talks and discussions on the use of cryo-EM to address difficult biological questions, which can help the participants address their own research problems. New for this year is to include Micro-ED and basic processing of Micro-ED data.

Participation in the entire course is mandatory and an attendance certificate will be given at the end of the course.

Course Objectives

  • To provide training in state-of-the-art techniques for high resolution structure determination by cryo-EM, including hands-on practical training in latest software suites for image processing
  • Discuss data collection strategies
  • Training in basic principles of structure determination using cryo-EM
  • Get an introduction to Micro-ED and softwares used for processing of Micro-ED data
  • Develop problem solving skills through discussions and practical sessions in the presence of international experts in the field
  • Networking with experts, software developers, and researchers in cryo-EM and learn of not only the latest but also upcoming developments

Course fee covers

  • Attendance in the course 20-24 May 2024
  • Lunches, coffee and refreshments on the course dates
  • Course materials
  • Certificate of attendance
